Description via Goodreads:
Haunted by an animal attack, seventeen year old Charlotte feels she is being followed. When she runs into a mysterious boy while camping, she’s afraid. Nothing seems right about him. Despite trying to stay away, there is an unmistakable draw to be near him. Even his scent smells familiar. But the closer she gets, the faster the secrets begin to unravel. Not only is he not human, he may have a link to her past. When Charlotte finds out someone wants her dead, she is torn between love and fear. Can she trust him to keep her safe?My thoughts:
I don't always get on too well with werewolf books. For a while I thought they might not be my thing but perhaps I've just been reading the wrong ones. Because I really enjoyed reading Caged Moon! I wasn't sure what to expect from it but from the very first page, I was impressed. I recommend setting aside a few hours if you're planning on reading this because I for one couldn't tear my eyes away! It was definitely addictive and very, very intriguing.
Our protagonist in this one is Charlotte and I really liked her from the start. She was just plain cool and I enjoyed getting to know her. I thought she was a really intelligent character who always thought things through logically which is awesome to see. What I loved was that she didn't keep it all to herself. When she was suspecting that weird things were going on, she told her friend and talked every detail over with her. It was really interesting that she didn't keep it all a secret and quite refreshing to see.
Liam is the love interest and I definitely liked him! I found myself smirking every time Charlotte was having a conversation with him. There was just something really sweet and amusing about him. He's a really nice guy, a little mysterious but not in an over the top way. He doesn't treat Charlotte like she's dumb and I liked that he was more forthcoming with information than I expected him to be. Charlotte and Liam's interactions were fun to watch.
The one thing I wasn't crazy about was the fast progression of their relationship. I felt like they had barely gotten to know each other when declarations of love were being thrown around! I would have liked it to go slower. Other than that, Caged Moon was a brilliant paranormal read. I enjoyed getting to know all about the wolves and I couldn't have predicted the way things went. It gets very intense towards the end of the book and I think the sequel will be wonderful!
